  • As the USA is a rich country with a balanced climate, it is not required to evolve abilities such as Heat Resistance 1 and Cold Resistance 1 in order to excel in this country. Like other rich countries, the United States has a well-funded health care system, and thus it is inadvisable to start in the country, as it may take an incredibly long time to infect even a small population.  The only definite exception to this rule is if the player wants to win achievements for DarkWater when playing as the Necroa Virus. Nevertheless, it is imperative that that the player purchases Drug Resistance 1, as well as Drug Resistance 2 in Mega Brutal and Brutal difficulties.



  • Despite Alaska being part of the United States, it is actually part of Canada in Plague Inc. (and Pandemic 2). Alaska is not part of the USA anymore, as the Canadians somehow acquired it via a treaty called the "Hay-Herbert Treaty." This was a joke put in by the game designers because an error in the game made it impossible for Alaska to be part of the USA.
    • Also, Hawaii is not seen anywhere on the map, even though it is also part of the United States. It was most likely too small for the map.
    • Other islands also don't seem to appear on the map. These include, but are not limited to, Taiwan, the Kuril Islands, and the Falkland Islands.
  • This country becomes rural and poor in Mirror Earth.
  • Compared to most City Cams, the United States is one of the few countries to not have its City Cam set in the country's capital, as it is set in New York, and the capital of the US is actually Washington, D.C.
